Project Barista combines two of many people's greatest passions! This series takes the relationship between coffee and beer in different directions, with four unique brews, four kinds of coffee used in different ways, in collaboration with four incredible independent roasters. Press to Zest is a refreshing, tart gose playing with the natural acidity of coffee.

An adventure in acidity, with coffee, lemon and souring with lactobacillus helveticus all competing for attention. Lemon is no stranger to espresso, with drinks like Mazagran and Iced Coffee Lemonade providing some early inspiration, along with its resurgence in recent times as a popular feel-good combination. Siren chose the coffee for its orange and bergamot notes, which came through really nicely in the whirlpool. Upon tasting, they decided some further additions would be required to pick up fuller, more robust and chocolatey coffee notes, which a warm steep in the spinbot and an overnight spin helped to layer up. Press to Zest is made with sea salt, which is often used to soften bitterness in coffee. It gives perceived sweetness, nice body and some roundness in a beer which inherently lends itself to sharpness. The result is a clean, balanced and refreshing drink with plenty of nuance to keep you guessing.
